The Wider Image: Syria’s mobile amputee clinic

Khamis, 24, pours gypsum in a bucket to make a mould for an artificial limb inside a workshop in the rebel-controlled area of Maaret al-Numan town in Idlib province, Syria March 20, 2016. Two university students forced to interrupt their studies have learnt to make and fit hundreds of new limbs in the past four years in opposition-held areas of Syria. A mobile clinic operating from a truck has gone some way to improve access to treatment. While most patients are between 15 and 45, the clinic also helps children and the elderly with replacement limbs. REUTERS/Khalil Ashawi SEARCH “SYRIA AMPUTEE” FOR THIS STORY.
